I've been using Maple since 1997 or so.

I started using maple around 1995 on the Inverse Symbolic Calculator to discover the MRB constant and got put on this list.

I discovered the MRB constant (CMRB) while using Maple. Since then, I've found many formulas related to it, including its integrated analog the MKB constant (MKB). They're both found in Google scholar!

However, I am stuck on proving the following.
